Visit some of Guadalajara’s most celebrated cultural attractions:

Degollado Theater
The neoclassical Degollado Theater is known for its diverse performances and artistic design. It is located in the central plaza of Guadalajara, on Belen Street between Hidalgo Avenue and Morelos Avenue. Many performances (from cultural Mexican dances to international operas) took place in this building. Meant to be a monument of Guadalajara's culture, the theater was inaugurated in September 1866; breathing life to the city through its innovative artistic beauty. It is home to the Jalisco Philharmonic, as well as to cultural festivals, operas, live theater, and dance.

Santa Maria de Gracia Church
Built as the first Cathedral for Guadalajara (Nueva Galicia) in the year 1549 makes this the oldest building in the region. This church was part of the same building that houses the Palace of Justice today. It has three simple Doric style doors; it has no steeples and its dome is based on an oval ring. Inside altars, with 19th Century Corinth retable, are remarkable. On baroque frames, there are four big murals covering arches, canvas signed by Antonio Enriquez. It has a sacristy painting collection, one of the best of Guadalajara, forming the 18th century on Saint Dominic´s life.

Guadalajara Cathedral or Cathedral of the Assumption of Our Lady
Guadalajara Cathedral is an impressive religious landmark in the center of the Mexican city. With its gothic twin spires, this church is one of the most recognizable landmarks in Guadalajara and has a fascinating history. Destroyed and rebuilt several times during its lifetime, the cathedral is a fascinating blend of architectural styles and has a storied past. Admire its impressive gothic towers and beautiful stained-glass windows and discover its collection of relics and artwork.

Cabañas Cultural Institute
The Cabañas Cultural Institute is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Designed by architect Manuel Tolsá and built at the beginning of the 19th century, this is one of the oldest and largest charitable complexes of New Spain, designed to function as an orphanage, as well as a home for the aged, the infirm, and the destitute. In the early 20th century, the chapel was decorated with a series of murals by José Clemente Orozco. The building was previously known as (and still often referred to as) the Hospicio Cabañas. In 1980, the building ceased to function as an orphanage and since that time has been used as a cultural center and museum.
